The NAACP and UNCF, are organizations whose sole purpose is to support the Black community. How is it that these groups are still in service in todays climate. In my oppinion the mere existence of an organization catering solely to one demographic group is predjudiced and promotes segregationalism. What say you

Apparently an organization is only racist if it supports specific demographics. As an example how would you feel about a WET (White Entertainment Television) We do have a BET (Black Entertainment Television) Or, shouldn't we also have a United Caucasian College Fund?

If you want to make a stand against racism than all of the organizations need to be eliminated.

The very names National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and United Negro College Fund (UNCF) are racist. Look it there were a National Association for the Advancement of White People (NAAWP) or United White College Fund (UWCF) how many would be up in arms about that? Exactly, those RACIST organizations need to be disbanded and until they and other like them are Racism will be running this country.

Naacp & Uncf must create racism to stay in existence. Most blacks can get into a college without costing them hardly a cent. I know first hand. So, where is that money really going???

the united negro college fund gives scholarships to all ethnicities and the naacp is responsible for legislation that helps all people. or do you all think that the civil rights act or brown v. board of education applies only to black people? hell, the NAACP was co-founded by white people.
you're literally crying about the names of the organizations. it's the stupid conservative version of political correctness

I am sorry, but I beg to differ. BET is sole purpose is not to create racism, but to notify those of African American desenct of news happening around them and to entertain just as the name says. If you flip through channels on your televison set and actually count or pay closely attention to how many faces of color you see on channel. You would come to find that there are not many so if you are led to believe that BET is racist then, every channel on tv is as well because just about every show and commercial is created with a white face and none of color. If there should be someone of color to appear in them they are in the background where society has chosen to put us for many of years

Every person has different barriers to get past on their path to success. Everyone needs to stop whining and crying racism and pick themselves up by their own bootstraps. We all are responsible for our own lives. We can all choose to move past our circumstances and be a success in our lives. Not all whites have it easy, and not all blacks are hard pressed. There are many more characteristics to a person than just their race that can play a roll in the difficulty level of their achieving success.

A negro congressman from georgia who just had to interject his own racism into the presidential campaign, not because he was really concerned about it, but rather because as all black boys know, if they can call a whitey a racist on TV in America it gets played over and over until the ignorant fools who watch TV believe its true.So, the idiots in georgia who elect black racists to represent them are probably the true RACE baiters/Racists and Haters. The real problem is how to get rid of those old negroes who wont let their hatred go. I suppose we will just have to wait for them to descend into the tar-pits like all other dinosaurs.

I can certainly agree with you... to an extent. So, why not just create more entertainment INVOLVING all peoples of color, not just blacks, instead of designating organizations and networks that openly aim at segregation? Granted, white vs. black faces on t.v. okay. But you don't END racism by separation. You do it through inclusion. I am not a fan of ANY group that is not all inclusive. Just sayin. I am not a fan of leaving anyone out or of targeting ONE and ONE ONLY demographic. It's disgusting when whites do it and it's equally so when others do it. Groups specifically directed at Blacks, Asians, Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, Whites... they all do more harm than good. What's the point anyway? To say "look at us, we're all of one kind, looking out and supporting our own kind." Well, if that doesn't SCREAM racism, I don't know what does.
On the other poster's point... What's in a name? The name of the above organizations is racist because the names are racist. When is it, in 2009 okay to use the term Negro or Colored? Just sayin.

" NAACP was co-founded by white people." Then it was highjacked by black people who threw the white co founders under the train and said to hell with them. It became The National Association Against Caucasian People. The have never done a thing to protect mymuthafukincivilrights

The NAACP and UNCF are both racist groups, bottom line! No one can convince me otherwise, so don't even try.

I wonder if you all are just as offended by groups such as the Asian American Association or groups that support the advancement of Native Americans. Do you believe that women's groups are sexist?

I understand why the NAACP and UNCF exist. However, I do agree that some of the NAACP's members' actions and arguments have been borderline racist, and/or could have been considered promoting racism. The fact is- that's not the goal of the group.

People with similar interests, heritages, and hobbies form groups all the time. The next argument I'm expecting is, "Wouldn't it be considered racist if we formed an all-white group?" Have you stopped to consider that "white" isn't a heritage? Us "white" folks are Irish, European, Scottish, Danish, etc etc... The groups are there to connect people with African American descent, that's all.
